Cache revalidation works better in a streaming mode as it helps keep the
TCP window full.
It's better for the server to keep sending until the client tells it to
stop, than the client to keep requesting more; especially as the client
doesn't know how well the response will compress. Cache revalidation can
have compression ratios of >1000:1, so the client doesn't even know how
much to ask for.
